What’s your pick among the most famous alien abductions ever recorded?
Those that come to mind immediately are the Betty and Barney Hill case of 1961, the Travis Walton Abduction in 1975 and the Pascagoula Incident of 1973.
Travis Walton’s abduction gained even greater notoriety following the 1993 movie, Fire In The Sky.
Another movie, The Fourth Kind, features a Dr. Abigail Tyler in the middle of an alien abduction epidemic in Nome, Alaska.
There have been a string of disappearances in Alaska but reports suggest the movie was based on fiction rather than fake.
In fact, viewers are told at the beginning “you decide”. So, we’ll leave this one off the list.
Were There Abductions In The Bible?
In any discussion centered around the most famous alien abductions in history, the names Enoch, Elijah and Ezekiel will be thrown up.
Hebrews 11:5 says:
“By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him”.
2 Kings 2:11 says:
“And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven”.
Then in Ezekiel verse 1:4, Ezekiel is watching a big storm approach with fire flashing from it. Then he says:
“Light was shining out all around it. It looked like hot metal glowing in a fire. 5 Inside the cloud, there were four living beings that looked like people”.
In 3:14 it reads:
“So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me”.
Notice he says he went in bitterness?
That doesn’t sound like he went willingly right?
Ezekiel 1 is a lengthy chapter, but will really challenge your thinking about what he saw.
Remember, people interpreted what they saw differently in ancient times.
They usually associated something with an animal or something else rather than what it was exactly that they were observing.
Just like the message to viewers in The Fourth Kind, “you decide?”
It’s all about individual interpretation or aligned to individual eras in human history.
Famous Alien Abductions In The Past 75 Years
So what is the most famous alien abduction ever reported?
Have there been abductions that have taken place just as compelling as those mentioned but never got media traction?
It would be a good project to conduct so stay tuned.
To be fair, Betty and Barney Hill, Travis Walton and the Pascagoula Incident all received wide media coverage.
Terry Lovelace was abducted during the Devil’s Den Incident in Arkansas during 1977. It’s quite spectacular and terrifying in nature.
Because Betty and Barney Hill set the tone in 1961, it’s the case that always seems to be highlighted when discussing alien abductions. Maybe it ranks as the most famous.
Again, you decide?
Meanwhile, Calvin Parker was central to the Pascagoula Incident in 1973.
He and friend Charles Hickson went fishing on the night of October 11th that year when there world was shattered by the arrival of an alien spacecraft.
Their ordeal gained mass media coverage.
We spoke with Parker recently and he says he can still remember the night with great clarity.
He says he spent many years living as a recluse but has emerged during the past five years to tell his story.
With the help of UFO researcher Philip Mantle, Parker says new witness evidence encouraged him to finally speak out.
He gives a very vivid description of the abduction in the following interview.
